Veerendra Khongal, one of the protestors said that if the Chief Minister can raise his party members' salaries upto Rs.75,000, does he ever think of general employees who are compelled to survive on Rs.2,500 to 3,000.
Protestors claimed that the pensioners were not getting Dearness Allowance making it difficult for them to survive.
" There is discrimination in the payments of the 500,000 emloyees under Madhya Pradesh Govt.. They are not getting paid according to the Sixth Pay Commission. There are 275,000 pensioners who are not getting any dearness allowances," said another protestor.
The protestors claimed that the State government promised them help in every possible manner but did not keep its promises.
"The government has not done anything for us. They just lied to us. They only took votes from us but when the question of money came, they said they do not have money. I have not seen so much corruption in my entire life. It seems the CM Shivraj Singh Chauhan has given his ministers full freedom of what they want to do," said Rajendra Tiwari, another protestor.
The protest was held in front of the state Secretariat. (ANI)
